I am interested in art that, however indirectly, addresses social justice, environmental sustainability, and the public good. In my blog posts I plan to give exposure to artists who find creative ways to use their work as a way to cultivate dialogue about these issues.

I studied Art History at Scotland’s Univeristy of St. Andrews and currently teach at Spring Arbor University in Michigan. My articles, book reviews, and exhibition reviews have appeared in a variety of print and online publications and journals, including Michigan History Magazine, Ceramics: Art & Perception, Interdisciplinary Humanities, The Sixteenth Century Journal,, and The College Art Association. I have also presented research on Barbara Hepworth, who I continue to admire for subtly using her art as medium to ultimately create a better society. Most of my current research involves exploring the Arts and Crafts Movement in the Midwest and its continuing legacy.

  1. Hi Jonathan- I just belatedly read your much appreciated review of the Changing Hands 3 exhibition, at Museum of Art and design. Thanks very much for including my basket in your observations. Although I do not think that this will affect any of the opinions stated in your review you might be interested to know that I am a “she” rather than a “he”.
    With kind regards-

  2. Hi Shan Goshorn,

    Thanks for your kind words in spite of the embarrassing misprint. I’ll get that fixed.

    The show really was excellent and thought provoking, and I’m so glad your work was on view. I’d love to see more of it, should any make its way into the Midwest.
